Worn out that Disney Plus subscription? Need a little more music in your nightly quarantine viewing? A ranking of movies based on rock albums is a strong reminder that there’s plenty of mind-expanding performance flicks to add to the queue.
Screenrant has taken the liberty of breaking down the top ten movies based on albums for us, according to Rotten Tomatoes scores. With Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny holding down the number ten spot with a 53 percent rating, the list is a mix of long-revered classics including Pink Floyd — The Wall (68%), next to more contemporary fare, like recent indie rock favorite God Help the Girl, made by Belle & Sebastian’s Stuart Murdoch (67%).
With only one Beatles movies making the cut (Hard Day’s Night, with a whopping 98 percent), the top two spots belong to a pair of truly great movies: The Who’s Quadrophenia, and Talking Heads’ concert classic, Stop Making Sense. See the full list here, and listed below.
